“She totally changed the way I am able to be more comfortable in public.”

IDK if it’s just me, but in my mind, Tom Holland is the most adorable, approachable guy.

I mean, just look at that face.

However, in a new interview with British GQ, the Spider-Man actor opened up about struggling a bit with fame earlier on in his career.

“Talking to Zendaya’s helped me a lot, actually,” he told the outlet. “I used to come across sometimes as a bit of a dick to fans, mainly as I was always so surprised that they’d want a picture with me or signature or whatever.”

I mean, that’s understandable. I’d be surprised too if a bunch of random people came up to me asking for my autograph all day.

He went on to admit that he would “have the typical Londoner reaction, one of instant suspicion: ‘Why are you talking to me?'” when approached.

Fortunately, Tom said Zendaya noticed his standoffish behavior and gave him some sound advice for coping with his newfound celebrity status.

“[She] quickly told me that this sort of reaction was going to be more aggro than just smiling and taking the picture. She totally changed the way I am able to be more comfortable in public,” he shared.

A friendship that supports each other and gives great advice when needed? We love to see it ❤️.
